CBRE Global Investors has announced that classic British restaurant and cocktail bar, Jones & Sons has now launched a second site at Angel Central Shopping Centre, Islington.
The new restaurant caters for 94 covers over 2,110 sq ft including an outdoor terrace space. This is an all-day offer for visitors, providing high quality British food with local and seasonal produce and artisan cocktails from across the globe.
Akin to the brand’s debut restaurant in Dalston, Jones & Sons at Angel Central provides a seasonal menu which changes every six to seven weeks. This includes their highly-regarded Sunday roast offer. Designed by Andy Jones, the interior of the new restaurant includes 1960s Danish dining chairs, lights sourced from a marine salvage specialist from Exeter and a Carrara marble top, providing a unique dining experience for guests to the new restaurant.
Commenting on the new restaurant opening, Angel Central, Matthew Barratt, Asset Manager at CBRE Global Investors, said: “Jones & Sons is a fantastic addition to the existing line-up of dining brands at the centre and this new opening cements Angel Central as a destination in London where emerging brands want to be. Angel Central prides itself on a community focus and we are delighted this family friendly brand is kick-starting our journey to an improved Angel Central with a strong retail and leisure offer at the centre.”
Andy Jones, founder of Jones & Sons, added: “After being on back streets and hidden away for 5 years, having a site right in the heart of Angel, was an opportunity that I couldn’t turn down. I’m really excited to now be open."
The 170,000 sq ft Angel Central benefits from an annual footfall of 10 million visitors and is ranked in the top 10 of London Retail Destinations*. Currently anchored by H&M, Angel Central’s retail line-up includes Muji, Rituals, Monsoon and Oasis, with the latter recently completing a significant refurbishment. In addition, Vue’s ten-screen cinema and the O2 Academy lead the leisure offer, which is complemented by a range of restaurants, such as Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Wagamama.
CBRE, CWM and BNP Paribas act on behalf of Angel Central for all the retail and F&B leasing enquiries. Jones & Sons represented themselves.
